Hello! We will arrive in Bay of Islands by Princess Cruise Ship. We would like to not book an excursion through the cruise line. How do we get from the cruise docking area to Paihia? thank you!
Are these a safe deal? We didn't get a refund after we were forced to cancel a booking with one outfit? Since the company is not responsive, is there some other body (other than the Disputes Tribunal or Fair Go?), that we could approach?

I'm flying into Auckland on Feb 11th 2005 for my first visit to NZ, .... so, I'm trying to find someone who can help me to find a scuba diving tour to the Poor Knights, while my travel partner attends her friends wedding in Christchurch. I am considering getting a flight to Whangerei, but the one dive shop in that area that I called for prices quoted me180NZ for 2 dives....... is this the usual price?? Its much more expensive than what I usually pay at other destinations. Secondly, if there are any friendly divers in that vacinity who think they would like to buddy with me for some innocent fun and socialising then drop me a line.
I am going to be traveling in New Zealand during New Years and had heard Paihia was a good place to be. I found out about a concert held at Haruru falls each year but can not find anything about this coming new years. Could anyone tell me if it is still on for this year (sponsered by Export Gold i think) and where to find it. If not can anyone tell me if anything is happening in Paihia or where a better place for New Years would be. Thank you very much. I would appriciate any help i can get.
